1000 years ago in the southwest United States, the Mimbres potters painted bowls with images from their lives and from their stories. They painted mythic heroes seeking wisdom, seducing young maidens and killing evil monsters. Many of the stories they illustrated are lost to time, dying with the storytellers. But, some of the stories survive, folded into the mythology of the Pueblo People. "Mimbres Mythology" includes more than 300 interpretations and illustrations of prehistoric Mimbres art, plus a special bonus section featuring "Cachi's Story," an enchanted tale of a young pueblo girl's rite of passage into Mimbres lore and mythology.

About the Author:

James Cunkle is the Coordinator and Director of the White Mountain Archaeological Center of St Johns, Arizona. In his three previous books, Treasures of time, Talking Pots and Stone Magic, he types and dates the ceramics of the Southwest and interprets the symbols found on the ceramics and petroglyphs of the region. During this research he became inspired by the concept that the Mimbres images contain a strong association with the mythologies of the Pueblo People.
